South of Show Low near Fort Apache, the Black River is the longest fly fishing river in Arizona. Starting at 7,500 feet in deep pine forest, the river then flows through deep canyons filling nice pools ideal for wading. The Black River is known for its brown trout and rainbow trout.

Getting to the lower sections of the Black River can be an experience in itself; expect to be on rough four-wheel drive roads for many miles.

Overall, Lower Black River is the 7th most popular fly fishing river of all 10 fly fishing spots in Arizona.
